Nagpur: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Sarsanghchalak Dr Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday said that all the people of India are Hindus and that whoever considers India as his motherland is a Hindu, irrespective of religion.
At the closing ceremony of the Tritiya Varsh Sangh Shiksha Varg (3rd Year OTC) organised by the RSS in Nagpur, he said, “All the people of India are Hindus. Whoever considers India as his motherland is a Hindu. Be it a follower of any religion, whatever the dress. This is the truth, and Sangh speaks this truth out loud. This is because we have been united for hundreds of years.”
Shri Mohan Bhagwat also said that India’s presidency in G20 was not ordinary. “It is clearly visible that everyone needs India. It is not an ordinary thing that India got the G20 presidency. It’s the beginning. We’ve to cover a long distance. The entire society needs to walk together as India can’t become Vishwa Guru through an organisation or institution,” the RSS Sarsanghchalak said.

Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat further said that to make India an “Atma-Nirbhar” (self-reliant), we have to avoid being imitators.
“If we are imitators, Indian would never become Atma-Nirbhar. The Sangh teaches four things- to worship the country, goodwill, repaying the national debt, following personal and social discipline,” he added.
Dr Mallikarjuna Shivacharya, 87th Jagadguru of Kashi Mahapeeth was the chief guest. “Young generation must have Spirituality and Patriotism. RSS is focusing on that most important and very much needed aspect. Children should be sent to the Sangh from the very beginning. The Sangh has been established to create National as well as individual character,”, Jagadguru Dr. Mallikarjuna Vishwaradhya Shivacharya Mahaswamiji said.
Among the other guests are Shri. Sridhar Vembu, Shri. Anwar Khan, Shri. Adinath Mangeshkar, Shri. Vishad Mafatlal, Shri. Baijayant ‘Jay’ Panda, Shri. Rishad Premji and Shri. Anurag Beher.
